With this theme, you can easily create galleries that alternate between one- and two-image rows. No third-party plugins or shortcodes needed. Just use the obvious ‘Stills Gallery’ Gutenberg block (or WP’s native gallery if you’re not into Gutenberg).
Add a #half tag to two neighboring images’ captions and they will stand in one row (see below). Drop a couple tags as you would do on Instagram or Facebook, and your two pictures will be placed in one row. The above set created with the native WordPress interface translates into what you see below. The #half tag is not displayed on the frontend.
You can click an image in the gallery to see it in a lightbox — with zoom and individual picture sharing functionality (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest). Individual picture sharing can be switched on/off in your Admin Panel.
The vertical images in these galleries always fit the screen. Looking at portrait-oriented pictures you won’t have to scroll up and down to get an idea of what is in the picture that goes outside the screen area. With this theme’s galleries, images are dynamically adapting to available screen real estate, and they can always be seen fully, regardless of the screen size.
Last but not least, images in the galleries don’t get cropped — neither when being displayed on the page, nor when being shown in lightbox view.
There are other interesting features in this theme, like customizable colors.
